Good afternoon Saxons,

It’s a bit delayed but Happy New Year! The extended winter break definitely was an unexpected surprise. It has truly been wonderful finally having students and staff back in the building. The other unexpected, and not so welcome surprise, has been the increased number of Covid cases. A huge thank you for your partnership in ensuring a safe learning environment for all of our students and staff. Please continue to encourage your student to wear the mask over the nose and mouth when inside of the building. Also, please keep your student at home when they aren’t feeling well. This will minimize the risk of other students getting sick or possibly being paused from instruction should your student test positive for Covid.

Congratulations to the Langley Forensics team as they took second place overall at the Northern Region Tournament.

With the increase in Covid cases, it is important that everyone is familiar with division expectations and procedures related to Covid illness or exposure. Please reference the division Covid guidance to find answers to any questions you may  have.

As we prepare to observe the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday, January 17, we are also watching for the potential of winter weather early in the week. Because we used all of our traditional snow days during last week’s snowstorm, any future inclement weather days will include virtual learning whenever possible.

We all need to prepare in order to have a successful inclement weather virtual learning day. Here at Langley, teachers and staff will make sure students have the devices and accessories they need and will go over how to log in to their virtual learning tools. Teachers will let students know what to expect for their classes.

At home, we ask that you do a few simple things that will make an inclement weather virtual learning day run smoothly:

  • Make sure students bring their device home Friday and be sure the device is charged ahead of Tuesday. 
  • Review the Student Technology Readiness Checklist with your child and complete all the at-home readiness steps. 
  • Remind your child that the inclement weather virtual learning day schedule includes a two-hour delay so they can check their devices and make sure they are able to log in properly. 
  • Remind your child that attendance will be taken on inclement weather virtual learning days.

FCPS will announce a virtual learning day in the weather closure announcement on our website and social media channels and through email communications and local media. Thank you for your help in making sure an inclement weather virtual learning day is a successful one for your student.

I wish each of you and your families a safe and happy long weekend.

Fondly,

Early Online College Program at NVCC

Do you have a junior or senior who is planning on taking college courses after graduation?  The Early Online College program at Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) may be for you.  This program allows juniors and seniors the opportunity to take up to two tuition-free courses this spring.  Please know that these courses will require 10-15 hours of work per week!

Early Online College courses for the spring semester begin on February 1, 2022, and end on April 25, 2022.  These are for college credit only and designed to jumpstart your students' college experience.  Whether they are planning on going to NOVA or another college/university, the courses were selected because they meet the requirements for most of NOVA’s associate degrees as well as being highly transferable as general education requirements for most colleges and universities.  The deadline is quickly approaching on January 14, 2022.  

Below are two documents to help you better understand the benefits of the Early Online College program.  The flyer and brief slideshow provide much of the same information that you will find on the NOVA Early College website. In addition, the FCPS Early College Website has Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).  If you are interested in your  junior or senior participating, please contact their school counselor or NOVA at [email protected].

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery2 weeks 3 days ago

Greetings Saxon Families, 

Happy New Year!  I hope that you were able to enjoy the unexpected extended winter break. Unfortunately many of our Langley families (to include staff) were impacted by COVID during our time off.  FCPS intends to remain open as we navigate this COVID spike - doing everything we can to mitigate spread and cover classes to keep us operational.   PLEASE help us ensure safety for students and staff by keeping your student at home if they are experiencing any COVID symptoms.   

It is important that when we return to school students arrive daily with their fully charged computer and a headset. This will be important in the event their teacher(s) cannot physically be present (due to isolation/quarantine) in the classroom to provide instruction.  

As we are working to ensure the safety of students and staff, we ask for your assistance with regard to after school. In order to ensure the smallest number of students in the building after school hours, including late bus days, please discourage your student from staying after unless they have a designated academic need.

I wanted to make you aware of some operational changes that will be occurring for the next few weeks and share some health reminders. 

Updates: 

  • All field trips will be canceled for the first two weeks of January.  We will reassess these precautions on January 14. Large group in-person gatherings are discouraged at this time to include: dances, pep rallies, and visits to other buildings, etc.
  • High School Athletics will continue with limited spectators.  There will be no general admission to any sports contests through Friday, January 14th. Spectators will be limited to family members of both the home and visiting teams.  Coaches will communicate specific details with athletes prior to their next competition.  
  • All parent in-person events will be moved to a virtual format.  A link will be provided in advance of the scheduled event.  
  • Transportation is experiencing a large number of absent drivers as we return from winter break.  The Transportation office will do their best to notify families if their routes are running more than 30 minutes late.  Routes that are running more than 10 minutes late should be posted in the bus delay system.  

Health Reminders: 

  • Please remind your student to follow all layered prevention strategies to include correct and consistent use of well-fitted masks at all times (except when eating), washing hands frequently, and staying physically distant as much as possible in classrooms, cafeteria, hallways and other areas.
  • CDC mask guidance has not changed. HERE is the Oct. 25, 2021 CDC guidance on the type of recommended/not recommended face masks. Masks should have multiple layers and be well fitted to one’s face. We will monitor closely should the guidance change.
  • Please reference the FCPS website for procedures regarding a student who tests positive for Covid or is identified as a close contact.
  • As of today, the Fairfax County Health Department (FCHD) will communicate with close contacts through email ONLY. This change in process has been implemented due to the high volume of cases to ensure contacts are provided guidance in a timely manner. Via email, close contacts will be provided information regarding quarantine, testing, and the vaccination survey.
  • We will continue to use outdoor spaces as much as possible for eating, learning, and/or other extracurricular activities.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. 

Wishing you wellness,

‘Tis the season to wrap anything you can find in Saxon Country!

During this final school week of 2021, there is great news to share! Langley has won the greatschools.org  College Success Award Gold designation! We are one of only 1770 schools nationwide to earn this distinction and only one of three FCPS schools to be recognized. I am honored and proud to lead such a remarkable school community.

As we close out this year, I personally thank each of you for your support, encouragement and partnership. This year has been one like no other. However, we have worked together to meet every obstacle and to ensure success for all in our school community. Our parents and caregivers are the cornerstone of our phenomenal school. Thank you to each of you for the individual ways you support our students and staff.

Greetings Saxons,

If you’re counting, you know there’s only 5 days until winter break! The halls are certainly alive with the buzz that only a pending break can bring. There is much joy in Saxon Country and much to celebrate!


Congratulations to our senior golfers who were recently recognized. 

 


Our music programs are in the midst of their winter concerts. After a one year hiatus due to Covid, the choral department held its Renaissance Feaste last Friday and Saturday evenings. The amazing event has been held for nineteen years. I highly recommend that everyone make plans to attend next year; you will not be disappointed. Congratulations to the choir students and their teacher Dr. Lambert on two successful evenings of music! Also, a huge thank you to the over 60 parents and the Cooper Middle School choir students who volunteered. Only through your assistance is an event such as this possible!


Tuesday evening, Saxon Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. McCormick, presented their winter concert, Russian Winter Dreams. The concert consisted of Russian pieces performed by our wonderful orchestra students. Each musical selection was introduced by an orchestra student who is also taking Russian. Our legendary Russian teacher, Dr. Cukierman, also joined in the festivities. He read a Russian poem and wowed the audience by singing a Russian folk song. It was truly a magical night which brought together two of our award winning programs at Langley. Thank you to Dr. McCormick and Dr. Cukierman for all they do in support of our students.


As part of the orchestra concert, a special tribute was provided to former Spring Hill Orchestra Teacher Ruth Donahue. She retired after 33 years of teaching orchestra at the school. We thank her for her incredible contributions to our community!


Congratulations to Saxon Band for a wonderful concert last evening. “Sleigh Ride” was the highlight of the evening!

There is wonderful news to share! Langley High School had added a new staff member. Julie Zimmerman (also known by the last name Hohl) has joined our staff. Julie’s four sons all attended Langley. She served as a dedicated parent volunteer during their time in Saxon Country. Julie has accepted the position of family liaison here at Langley. She will be working to support families and the school’s engagement with parents and guardians. Julie, thank you for your ongoing support of our school community and your willingness to join us as a colleague.

I’m thrilled to inform you that Langley has been nominated as a potential Virginia candidate for the 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools Program. We are one of only four schools nominated by FCPS based upon eligibility under the criteria for National Blue Ribbon Schools Program, as defined by the U.S. Education Department (USED). This distinction is due to the hard work of our students and staff. Way to go, Saxons! In January, we will find out if we have been selected as a state nominee.

A heartfelt thank you to each of you for your ongoing support of our school, students and staff. It truly does take a village to raise a child. The ongoing support of parents, guardians and other stakeholders is what makes Langley so special. I count myself fortunate to lead such a phenomenal school community.

Warmest regards,

Did You Know

According to Harvard Health Publishing, Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps regulate sleep and appetite, mediate moods, and inhibit pain. Since about 95% of your serotonin is produced in your gastrointestinal tract, and your gastrointestinal tract is lined with a hundred million nerve cells, or neurons, it makes sense that the inner workings of your digestive system don’t just help you digest food, but also guide your emotions. Here is the full article “Nutritional psychiatry: Your brain on food.”

Saxon Service

Earn service hours: Would your student like to earn a service hour credit? Saxon Service is coming up in the Langley Cafeteria on Thursday, December 9 during the Langley Links period. Saxon Service is a way for students to participate in service — and earn service hours — during the school day. Students who engage in at least 40 hours of service (10 hours per year) during their high school career are eligible to earn a Service Cord to be worn at graduation. 

Typical activities include writing cards to active-duty military or kids in hospitals, making blankets for area homeless shelters, playing freerice.com to help those with food insecurity, folding origami cranes for patients with cancer and making dog and cat toys for pet shelters.

To sign up, students should click here to get a pass from their 3rd block teacher to be released for Saxon Service. To join the Saxon Service Schoology group, use code 49W6-HGZK-ZHTPT. Don’t forget to log your service hours in x2vol! 

Parents, want to show your service commitment by volunteering for Saxon Service? Adult volunteers are needed from 9-10:30 am on Dec 9. Please contact Julie Hohl at [email protected] if interested.

The Langley High School Choral Department is excited to announce the return of the Renaissance Feaste at 7 pm on Friday, December 3 and Saturday, December 4.  Join us as we journey back to Merrie Olde England for a Festive Holiday Feaste and Serenade featuring the Magnificent Madrigals accompanied by the charming Chamber Choir and jesters and minstrels from the Concert, Treble, and Treble Select choirs, all in their liveliest period garb.

This is Dr. Mac Lambert, Jr.’s 20th year as Choral Director at Langley High School, so everyone is particularly grateful to be able to bring back the popular Feaste, re-envisioned a bit for Covid.  We will provide glorious food, entertainment, and traditional madrigal songs such as “Deck the Halls” and “Masters of this Hall” in our richly decorated banquet room known as Langley Halle.  Because of the dastardly Covid pestilence, we will make accommodations at our great performance.  We plan to have fewer guests to enjoy more space and food plated and sealed individually to be safe.  Our minstrels will wear special masks when performing and our guests too will don masks when not eating. With fewer seats available, the crowds have already purchased two-thirds of the Halle, so we suggest you buy your tickets early.  Tickets are $40 for Lords and Ladies, and $25 for those of fewer years and those who toil at this place of learning.

For more information and to buy tickets or donate for the Renaissance Feaste, visit https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/5291225

Greetings Saxons,

I hope this blustery fall day finds each of you well. As we are quickly approaching the Thanksgiving holiday, we have much for which to be thankful! A huge shoutout to our It’s Academic team on their first round win. We look forward to seeing you in the playoff round in the upcoming months.


Congratulations to our girls cross country team on their eighth place finish at the state championship. We are so proud of these athletes.


Congratulations to the cast and crew of Saxon Stage’s production of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. There’s still time to purchase tickets to attend a show.

As we are preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving next week, please be advised that teachers have been asked to have no assignments due, or tests administered, on November 29 and 30. It is our sincere hope this will allow students an opportunity to relax and spend time with loved ones. Self-care is important and it is imperative that we work to support the mental wellness of our students. I greatly appreciate your assistance in this important endeavor.

Fondly,

Greetings Saxons,

I hope the long weekend provided our students an opportunity to recharge and gear up for a phenomenal second quarter. When I was a teacher, I would remind my students that with a new quarter was an opportunity to reset and make improvements based upon the lessons learned from the previous marking period. It is my hope that as students have adjusted to being back in the building, we will continue to see each of them demonstrate growth and improved mastery of content in each of their classes.

As we know, it takes a team to ensure success for our kids. I am thrilled to introduce the newest members to Saxon Country. We welcome two new counselors to the Student Services department.


Ms. Karen Siddiqui will work with students whose last names are in the range of R-Sul. Ms. Siddiqui
graduated from Worcester State University in Worcester, MA with a bachelor's in Psychology and
received her master's degree in School Counseling from Salem State University in Salem, MA. Her positivity and passion in supporting students navigate high school and preparing for the college process will be a great fit for Langley.  


Ms. Kashima Morrison will support students whose last names are in the range of Suma-Z. Ms. Morrison has served as a school counselor over the last 7 years in both the U.S. and Qatar.  Her knowledge, experience and dedication toward assisting students reach their goals made her stand out from the rest and we are confident that she will be great addition to Langley. 

With the new month is a lot of great news to share regarding our stellar student athletes.

At last week’s varsity football game, Senior Night was held for a number of teams. We congratulate senior members of football, dance, cheer, madrigals and band.

A huge shout out to the Saxon Freshmen Football team. Not only were they victorious over the Highlanders in their final game of the season, they finished the season with an 8-1 record.


Langley Girls Cross Country is headed to states!  It is the team's best finish at Regionals (2nd place) and first state berth in almost 30 years! The last time the team qualified for the state championship was 1992.  They will compete for the championship at Great Meadows Park in The Plains, VA on Saturday, Nov. 13. Way to go Saxons!

We wish our varsity football team the best of luck as they take on McLean in their final game of the season this evening. During today’s morning announcements, I reminded students that at all times we keep it classy in Saxon Country. If you student plans to attend the game, please remind them to demonstrate proper sportsmanship by cheering for our team, without making negative comments about the opposing team or referees. Also, not outside items, such as backpacks, food, drinks are allowed into the stadium.

We wish our volleyball team luck tomorrow as they take on McLean HS in regional play tomorrow at 4 pm at McLean HS.

This weekend will provide everyone a little extra rest. Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour on Saturday evening!

Hail Saxons,

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery2 months 3 weeks ago

Greetings Saxons,

I’m thrilled to share this week’s happenings in Saxon Country with you. The week has been a busy one and our students and staff are excited to have completed the first quarter of the year. The Pink Out and Halloween costumes worn today definitely brought additional joy to the school. These aren’t the only reasons we have joy at Langley. Here are some additional highlights from our great school!

Our very own Marching Saxons earned the highest possible rating, “Superior”, from every judge at the state marching assessment. It’s a huge accomplishment for a band with over 60% first time marchers, and we are very proud of them! We also congratulate all band students on the success of last evening’s first band concert of the year.

Both the girls and boys cross country teams finished in the top 4 at the Liberty District Championships yesterday, advancing to the Northern Region Championships, which will be held at Burke Lake Park on Wednesday, November 3. The Saxon girls took second place in the race. Congratulations to our top five runners in the field Lila Waters, Madeleine Spaner, Hazel Calway, Elena Pesavento and Corinne Sheedy. We commend our top five male runners Boden Gentile, Roan Toole, Wes Knaggs, Kevin Farnsworth and Clayton Stoil.

Congratulations to this year’s PTSA Reflections Contest winners!

A very delayed thank you to our phenomenal PTSA for the wonderful staff lunch they provided earlier in the month. We really appreciate the members who volunteered for the event!

I believe the strong partnership that parents and teachers share is the cornerstone of Langley’s success. The involvement of parents is so appreciated by school staff. As we are all adjusting to the return to the normal school routine, I kindly ask parents to please be mindful a couple of items. School staff have 24-48 hours to respond to communication. As staff members are juggling many responsibilities, it isn’t always possible for them to immediately respond to emails and/or phone calls. Also, when communicating with staff, it is requested that we work to find collaborative solutions. Our teachers, and other staff members, are working really hard. Thank you for treating them with kindness and respect.

I wish each of you a wonderful weekend. Hail Saxons!

Fondly,
